After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures.

Crafted from the timeless family recipes of chef Carlos Melendez, Coyote Crossing serves a colorful array of authentic, regional Mexican cuisine. Coyote Crossing's dinner menu brims with delicious-sounding dishes, from the poblano-packed pollo enchiladas ($17.95) to the puntas chipotle, a piquant dish with black Angus tenderloin and exotic spices ($24.95). Those giving the slip to their Necronomicon–thumping boss for lunch can scarf down the chili verde burrito ($8.95), where slow-cooked pork is nestled next to green chili and queso fresco in an edible sleeping bag of devourable delicacy.

Chefs at Coyote Crossing put great care into crafting their authentic Mexican cuisine—for instance, they blend 54 ingredients into a signature mole sauce that takes two days to make. This detail-oriented approach takes them beyond standard tacos to dishes such as chipotle prime beef tips or tampiquena, a thin-cut, grilled steak served with sautéed poblano peppers. During summer months, the kitchen highlights fresh seafood, offering such delights as watermelon shrimp ceviche or a catch-of-the-day with poblano sauce and fresh pesto vegetables.
Coyote Crossing’s dining room evokes Southwestern style. In cool weather, patrons can warm up at the fireplace indoors; on balmier days, they can retreat to the sunny brick patio with outdoor seating, where they confront an enchanting terrace replete with a stone fountain, the shade of leaves, and a delicate floral aroma.
